What's going on at Russia-based Travelmenu, a startup which specialises in online package holidays?
The message on the website is that the server is unavailable and a note from the team on the Travelmenu Facebook page talks of doing everything possible to:
"...return the debts... and recouping losses suffered by the tourists affected by the cancellation of their travel"
To provide a bit of background, Travelmenu launched its B2C service in November 2010 (TLabs here) and secured $1.6m in funding from Almaz Capital and Runa Capital two years ago.
Media reports of additional cash injections suggest the company may have received up to $4.6 million in total after further investment early last year.
Fast forward almost 18 months and a spokeswoman for Runa Capital has confirmed the company's technology is being sold to a "big tourist company".
She denies Travelmenu has not been successful but has, as yet, not responded to additional queries around whether the company has ceased operations while the sale goes through and whether reports in Russia-based publications hold any truth.
The Runa Capital spokeswoman says in the same report that the Travelmenu brand is unlikely to continue.
With eye-watering growth figures emerging from some of the region's online travel players and large funding rounds for hotel players including Oktogo and Ostrovok emerging from some of the region's online travel players, it makes you wonder why Travelmenu would sell.
But, package holidays have always proved a challenge for online players and been slow to take off so perhaps Travelmenu is a victim of that.
